Coast songstress Nyota Ndogo is on a mission to look for her lost family members who she believes are residing in Zambia.
The songstress who was born and resides in Mombasa recently revealed that none of her parents are Kenyans as her father is from Tanzania while her mother hails from Tunduma a small town in Southern Tanzania near the border with Zambia.
Nyota says her mother was taken from Zambia at a tender age of 14 years by her fathers friend who promised to educate her only to end up turning her into a househelp.
However Nyota says her mother has not forgotten her roots as she says she is th last one in a family of 15.
“hatujui mtu hata Moja wakutoka upande wa mama.anasema kwa wapo kumi na tano na yeye ndio Alikua wa mwisho.hajui kama babake yupo ama hayupo.anasema anatokea tunduma.nataka kufanya tour ya kumtafutia familia yake.alikuja vipi Kenya? Rafiki ya babake alikwenda kumchukua kwa wazazi wake nakusema anakuja kumsomesha badala yake akamjeuza kijakazi,”( We don’t know anyone from my mother’s family.She is she is the last born in a family of 15 and hails from Tunduma, I want to trace her roots to understand how she landed in Kenya. A friend to her father picked her from her family promising to educate her but instead turned her into a househelp” Nyota wrote
Nyota also posted a video where her mother was speaking in a language that does not sound like a Kenyan language asking her fans if they recognized the language.
Nyota has enjoyed a close relationship with her mother, last year she build her mother a house after calling out her sisters who she accused of neglecting her mother.
